Coloma - 1848 Gold DiscoveryMany of our group went to Coloma (gold discovery site) instead of (or in addtion to) going to Apple Hill.

James W. Marshall found shining flecks of gold in the tailrace of the sawmill he was building for himself and John Sutter. This discovery in 1848 changed the course of California's and the nation's history. The photo above shows a replica of the original sawmill. Over 20 historic buildings including mining, house, school, and store exhibits are nearby.
Lunch get-togetherWe all (except Aubrey and Sally F) met at Linda and Ned B's cabin up in Pollock Pines.
Lunch included wraps, potato salad and a nice garden salad -- and pies!...
